Cumbria Tourism 2018 ‘Best Wedding Venue’ Award Entry

Every year, the Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate and reward the best venues across Cumbria. Last year we were finalists in the Small Hotel of the Year category and this year we’re entering the prestigious ‘Best Wedding Venue’ award and we are determined to win!

2018 cumbria tourism awards

The winners are voted for by an independent judging panel, representing a trusted mark of quality in Cumbrian hospitality and, this year, we’re hoping to secure the top spot!


We think our hotel here at Broadoaks Country House is perfect for those looking to celebrate a special occasion, so we’ve put together a quick post about what makes us a top Cumbrian wedding venue.


The setting

When it comes to celebrating a wedding we think it deserves an equally special setting which is why our hotel is perfect.


Situated just a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere and with a stunning view across the Lake District mountains, Broadoaks is in a magical location. You can wake to hear the sound of a babbling river on its way down to the lake and enjoy your morning coffee watching the sun rise over the Langdale Pikes, or take a walk around nearby lakes Ullswater or Windermere to wake up the senses.


However you choose to spend your time with us, it’s certain to be the perfect match for your special event. 


Our hotel

And, with such a beautiful setting, it’s only fitting that we provide a hotel to match!


Our hotel has a number of boutique, luxury rooms and suites to suit any preference. We offer a romantic collection, a classic collection, and a bijou collection, as well as the chance to opt for ‘The Retreat’, all of which come with hand-selected, bespoke interiors and beautiful decor.


On top of this, we offer two stunning dining options, the Oaks Brasserie and the Orangery, where our Michelin recommended head chef serves up delicious gourmet dishes honed through her experience in multiple professional kitchens.


You can also enjoy the seven acres of gardens we have to offer, as well as access to two of our partner spas, exclusive boat trips on the lake, our on-site helipad and more.


Our weddings

We’re proud to offer a fairytale Lake District wedding venue here at Broadoaks that’s just perfect for saying ‘I do’.


With an experienced team who have organised, catered, and delivered their fair share of weddings over the years, we can create a personal, bespoke wedding day for you and your loved one.


Whether it’s a country chic theme or a sophisticated, classical day you’re after, we’re dedicated to providing the best venue and can accommodate up to 100 guests for a sit-down meal, plus another 130 for your evening reception. You can also hire the entire of the main house for up to 32 of your nearest and dearest, with some extra garden rooms available for larger parties.


We have numerous licensed areas throughout the hotel, both indoor and outdoor, so we can find the perfect fit for your vision and are located nearby to many local churches. Plus, we’ll work with the happy couple to craft a delicious, bespoke menu to enjoy, ranging from a hog roast to a traditional wedding buffet.


And, what better backdrop for your wedding photographs than the stunning Lakes?


Exclusive hire

However, our events aren’t solely confined to weddings and our hotel is great for any event, whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary or a corporate team building occasion.


You can exclusively hire the hotel for any occasion, with use of the luxury rooms as well as our two large function rooms which can be transformed to suit your special event. We can provide the food, the drink, and the entertainment, plus some added extras such as archery, clay pigeon shooting and driving experiences.


And, if you’re wanting to throw a bash without hiring out the whole hotel, we also offer the use of the hotel on a non-exclusive basis. You can have a private meal in one of our function rooms, book up to eight rooms in the main hotel, and even book out The Retreat for a smaller celebration!


So, we think our hotel is perfect for any event you may want to celebrate!


Some of our reviews

We think our homely country house really works, however don’t just take our word for it. We hold a Certificate of Excellence on Trip Advisor and, we consistently receive great reviews from our guests, which you can read here, ranging from ‘Wow! Amazing place!’ to ‘words cannot explain how perfect our day was!’. 


Why not also read our wedding reviews on and find out why our wedding couples love us so much!


With the closing date fast approaching for the Cumbria Tourism Awards, we’ll be sure to keep our fingers crossed for some great news over the next couple of months!
